Autism - Finding a Way Through and Upwards
Speaker: Audrey Chin
Dealing with autism, in many ways, is trying to find a way of coping with being overwhelmed. Too much, too little, too bright, too soft, too many, too, too, too. When someone is unable to cope, then the strategies for existing can become extreme. Often that is what we see when we determine someone is autistic.
Drawing from her experience in the Sensory Motor Therapy Centre as a Expressive Art Therapist and as Senior Therapist at the Muki Baum Treatment Centre as well as experiences in Community Living, Audrey will discuss how to help people cope with situations that seem out of control. These ideas can also apply to our own.
